March Book Club: The Vanishing Half

This month, the Golden Braid Books Community Book Club is reading The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. We have lots of copies in stock, so come on by and get yours today! Keep in touch with us throughout the month on our Instagram and Facebook pages, and then we’ll convene here at the Braid for our book club meeting to talk about the book, meet some new folks, and share some insights and mutual love of reading.

From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white. The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect? Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing . Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins. As with her New York Times-bestselling debut The Mothers, Brit Bennett offers an engrossing page-turner about family and relationships that is immersive and provocative, compassionate and wise.

Ballet West's Love and War

Passion, love, and death! From the moody love songs of singer/songwriter James Blake, to the sizzling strains of the electric violin, to one of the most profound pieces of dancer theater ever created, these dances will take you on an unforgettable journey through love and war. Ballet West shows its strength and versatility to tackle bold new work and important revivals with the Utah Premiere of Blake Works I by one of the world’s most renown contemporary choreographers, William Forsythe. Red Angels is a passionately-charged work that highlights dancers’ athleticism, urged on by an electric violin soloist. Kurt Jooss’ 1932 antiwar masterpiece, The Green Table, shows us that ultimately, the only victor in war is Death. Tickets here: https://www.balletwest.org/events/detail/love-and-war
